TG we have raised all kinds. Currently we have Black Polish, Buffs, Rhode Island reds, Red Sex Links of varying types, Black Sex links, Americaunas, My favorites though have been California grays (really hard to find and not cheap). We've had Ideals, Gold Laced Hambergs, Bantys of various types as well. There I'm sure are another one or two floating around. My son is the one that is into chickens. He raises them for eggs and rarely looks (Black Polish). His customers like having the variety of egg colors and only a few are stuck on one color (white or brown). All dislike the small sized eggs of the banty and I suspect will have the same opinion of the Black Polish. I find with the mixed flock I have all sorts of personalities. The hambergs could never be penned. They roosted in the bushes outside the window. The americaunas are the alarm raisers and will attack whatever they see as a threat if cornered. The buffs actively solicit attention and the grays were extremely smart and were easily taught tricks. We had one that was housebroken. The RIRs it just depends. Some like attention some not so much. They camouflage better than all but the hambergs and specific colors of americanas because of their coloring and our surroundings.
